RE: Calculation Software

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]
Yes it is.  A couple of years ago I purchased an educational version while
working for the civil department at a university.  When I went to upgrade a
year later that is what I was told.  I would have been hit to upgrade to
commercial then to upgrade to the newer version.

Isn't the "education" version strictly for educational purposes and
specifically prohibited for commercial use?
